Salute to Jewish Educators a Huge Success

The Salute to Jewish Educators was a wonderful experience again this year. We had over 250 people from across the spectrum of the Milwaukee Jewish community participate. It was a great feeling to recognize all of our hard working teachers and to celebrate their successes. We are so grateful for all they do. It was also a remarkable opportunity to be together as ONE community, as one participant said, "עם אחד עם לב אחד" Am Echad Im Lev Echad -- One People with One Heart.

Please enjoy these videos and pictures from the Salute to Jewish Educators. You can see more pictures here.
